Well, the Doomguard is terrible nowadays so we're not gonna see any big differences in our overall damage output no matter how much effort we put in timing when to summon him. My GoAK on my Ret does more damage during 30 secs than the Doomguard does in 1 min (and GoAK is 5 min CD). It's pretty sad.
Bonku, sometimes you write strange things. Me confused by strange things
Yes, you could play as a gnome.
Concerning refreshing dots after a trinket proc. Do you guys usualy recast them manually, with felflame (for UA and Cor) and/or do you burn some shard here and there for a SB:SS to refresh everything in one GCD (assuming no shard gained by DrainSoul on kills) ?
Currently I often refresh dots with felflame and a manual agony but I wonder if that's the best way to go about it. For example, at pull my opener is usually:
Now after around 2 ticks I usually have my 2 trinkets procs
I'll throw in a FF (clip MG after a tick) and MG,Haunt,MG,MG
At this point DS is soon to be over and one of the proc too.
I wonder if I should
-SBSS to reapply everything with max procs or (this consumes a shard )
-do 2 Felflame + Agony or (this gives something close to a full reapplication)
-Reapply each dot manually (before one of the buff wears out)
Example might be a bit imprecise since I can't verify it right now.
Last question, what kind of uptime on dots is good ? what average uptime on haunt do you have ?

For the dot uptime, 100% is a good number. Yeah something like that, especially agony. for Haunt, 60% is a great number but not easilly obtainable, it depends of the fight but as usual, the highest you can maintain.
Since the power aura's info seems to be under wraps a couple of other questions until someone can share them.
whats best way to avoid soul swapping your target in error? I rarely use the transfer function of SS so the main reason I am casting it again is to refresh the 3 dots (now when i notice I have proced or DSM is up to trigger)
In fact I have DSM macro'd to the soul swap. is that dumb? I am able to cast it before SS with the macro and then gain the benefits each time its up.
I´m little bit confused through some postings here. I want to optimize my dps and therefore I would like to know, whether the doomguard benifit currently from bloodlust/heroism/time warp or not. If not, is it better to cast him at <20% boss life?
Another question is, does dark soul and bloodlust/herosim/time warp stack? Pls apologize if I wrote something incorrectly and for my bad english.
Thx for answering my questions.

Yes, Dark Soul and Timewarp/Heroism stack. You can get ridiculous DPS that way.
There is the following though, something Evralia was talking about on a previous page:
So there might be something buggy going on with Doomguard and Heroism. Still in theory everything should be as I said.
Hi, I have searched many threads and posts in forum, also searched nearly every DoT addon via curse client, but havent noticed or seen any addon that I want. Every addon shows what I casted, I want a dot tracker addon that shows DoTs I should cast and maintain all time. Tried dottracket, dottimer, fortexorcist, lockdots, etc. Please tell me an addon very usefull for affliction.
AffDots has become quite popular since it was created a couple of weeks ago. You also have addons such as WeakAuras, PowerAuras, TellMeWhen, NeedToKnow that can do pretty much anything you want with some configuration.
